WHAT DOES X-RAY BURSTER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

X-ray burster

X-ray bursters are one class of X-ray binary stars exhibiting periodic and rapid increases in luminosity peaked in the X-ray regime of the electromagnetic spectrum. These astrophysical systems are composed of an accreting compact object, typically a neutron star or occasionally a black hole, and a companion 'donor' star; the mass of the donor star is used to categorize the system as either a high mass or low mass X-ray binary, abbreviated as HMXB and LMXB, respectively. X-ray bursters differ observationally from other X-ray transient sources, showing a sharp rise time followed by spectral softening. Individual burst energetics are characterized by an integrated flux of 1039–40 ergs, compared to the steady luminosity which is of the order 1037 ergs for accretion onto a neutron star. As such, the ratio of the burst flux to the persistent flux, denoted in the literature as α, ranges from 10 to 103 but is typically on the order of 100.
